Ticket to Ride

By |2022-02-03T15:17:41-05:00August 8, 2011|iPad Reviews|

My first impressions of Ticket to Ride were not good. The menu graphics seemed hokey; they are all still-frames that look like oil paintings. Once you tap on a link to another menu the next menu slides in to frame. This whole time the train conductor is voicing over each screen with the options that you have just activated...

Greedy Bankers

By |2011-07-10T23:00:10-05:00March 30, 2011|iPhone Reviews|

A perfectly titled game considering the current state of domestic and overseas economy, Greedy Bankers is one of the latest puzzle titles to grace iPhone users’ super-sensitive screens. Fast paced and quick moving, this game from Alistair Aitcheson draws influence from more classic titles such as Dr. Mario, Bejeweled, and Diamond Mine, as piles of gleaming jewels drop onto the screen for your grubby hands to collect. Armed with a keen eye and a propensity for hoarding all the cash in sight, players will find themselves acting like a kid in a candy store once entering the vaults within Greedy Bankers...

Pirates vs. Ninja vs. Zombies vs. Panda

A pirate, a ninja, a zombie, and a panda walk into a bar. The bartender looks up and says, “Hey! Where’s the angry bird?” If you’ve heard of Angry Birds, but not of PvNvZvP, Pirates vs. Ninja vs. Zombies vs. Panda, then you haven’t been paying attention. PvNvZvP is the very similar but (in my opinion) the more challenging, adult version of Angry Birds. When I first played Angry Birds I flew (pun intended) through the levels and was done with the game in a few days. The only replay value I got was going back and getting more stars and finding the hidden eggs. Yes, Angry Birds is still a very good game and worth every penny, but it doesn’t offer the same challenge that PvNvZvP offers...

Attack and Destroy

By |2011-07-10T23:31:10-05:00June 22, 2010|iPad Reviews|

Attack & Destroy is a strategic turn-based game where you control and lead a small three member team into battle. Your team can consist of a shotgun toting Grunt, a sneaky Sniper, a Technician with toys, and a quick moving Scout. Each character has special powers that can be used every other turn, for example; the Grunt has a forward charge that increases his speed, the Scout can reveal hidden landmines, the Sniper can turn invisible, and the Technician can set up gun turrets. Obviously the trick is that each one of these team members brings something different to each battle so you have to choose wisely when creating a team for each specific mission...

Mr. Kubus

I’m not sure I've ever seen an iPhone/iPod Touch game like Mr. Kubus before and if I have then it obviously didn’t leave an impact. This 2D left to right scroller is a mix between a puzzler and a strategy game. The object of the game is to reach the finish line with as many red hearts as possible. As you move through the level you can gather hearts, and also lose them by running into obstacles...
